This beer is made in the pumpkin beer tradition, except instead of pumpkins we used yams, and lots of them! A big Belgian-style brown ale of 10% ABV, this one is bringing pumpkin beers (or yam beers) into new territory.

Dark (clear) ruby color, steady off-white head. Wheat, banana, yeast, clove and ginger in the nose. Crisp carbonation. Christmas spicey (cinnamon, clove), Belgian yeasts, some molasses, quite alcoholic. Mouthfeel is reasonably balanced, although alcohol is present.

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malts, the typical spices found in most pumpkin beers (nutmeg, cinnamon), and sweet potato casserole. The flavor is strong caramel malts, maple syrup, with a hefty dose of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a high level of sweetness, but I expected it and it wasn’t cloying. Mouthfeel was medium-full and relatively smooth. I thought this was one of the better pumpkin beers I have had; it was just made with sweet potatoes.

Bottle. Murky copper pour with a tall, foamy, beige-colored head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, sweet potatoes with marshmallow and spice. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, spices, light molasses, candied yams and marshmallow, and yeast notes. Light bitterness here as well. Nice competitor to the pumpkin beers. Fits in very well with them, taste-wise. Body is medium with a strong, prickly carbonation. Ends with more sweet malts, candied notes, strong spices, bitter notes, yeast, yams, caramel, light molasses, and brown sugar.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Bottle. Poured a deep orangeish brown color with a small tan head that quickly disappeared. Nose is spiced with vegetal notes, cinnamon, nutmeg, and yeast are also present. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel and soft carbonation. Flavor is on the sweet side, with big notes of brown sugar and molasses, lesser notes of cinnamon, clove, spicy yeast, and sweet potato are also present. I liked this beer it hides it ABV amazingly well, but it lacks a lot of the complexity and character that it’s big BA brother has.

Probably a good effort if you’re in the mood. I drank it in late winter long beyond when I was enjoying other pumpkin beers and in a significant horizontal tasting with over a dozen beers. So forward alcohol wise that I’d like to leave one sit for about 2 years and give it a go.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2010
Clear dark brown with a small beige head that leaves some rather nice lazings on the snifter used. Nose is extremely spicy and sweet, intense and rather straightforward. Flavor is spicy, sweet and warming, almost hot alcohol. Ends on a suprisingly dry and spicy note. Creamy and a bit sticky mouthfeel with rather sharp carbonation.. Too spicy for me, really weird one..

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby with a medium sized light beige head. Sweet pumpkin pie, vanilla, caramel, whipped cream, spice, maple syrup, candied bananas. Smells like pie. I like pie. Medium bodied, sweet and full of spice. Caramelized yam flavors. Finishes up with more sweet pie flavors. Tasty, and not as overpoweringly sweet as the BA version I had a while back.

The aroma is malty, spicy (cinnamon, nutmeg), maple not as strong as i had expected), yeasty, sweet potatoes. The appearance is slightly hazy orange/brown, off-white head. The flavor is spicy, yeasty, maple syrup. The finish is spicy, nutmeg, light hops. The mouthfeel is carbonation, slick, the body is medium thick. This beer most closely resembles a belgian ale. Not bad at all.
